the challenge. we were invited to participate in a food art shoot, food & jewellery, for the 2nd edition of PUPMAG. #2, a cultural conceptual magazine.

the new our daily work as food conceptualists we focus on vegetables, fruits and specialty grains. every day we enjoy the beauty of these earthy gems. for us vegetables, fruits and grains are the jewellery, the new luxuries on the dinnerplate of the future. from this perspective it is rather logical to combine food & jewellery in a food art shoot.

the food art shoot. on may 16th, thamar lugthart (PUPMAG.) teamed us up with lonneke van der palen(photography), dineke van den heuvel (styling), frances krol (make up), frédérique olthuis (nails) and leonie op het eijnde (hand model).

PUPMAG. #2 is launched on june 19th, and in stores since july 20th, 2014. PUPMAG. issues 2 editions per year.

interview with the dinner party download about “oliebollen”

on october 27th, 2013, rico gagliono, host of the american public radio show “the dinner party download” visited the culinaire werkplaats.

rico had an interview with eric about “oliebollen” (dutch doughnuts). he had spotted that the dish too late? of our eat’inspiration ‘just in time was about oliebollen and champagne. a dish which is a twistful and spicy reference to the dutch new year’s eve tradition.

the dish questioned whether it is or isn’t too late for good intentions, as many people think it is 5 minutes to 12 for our planet.

esse organic skincare

october 17, 2013, we have hosted the press presentation of esse organic skincare. for the journalists and bloggers we have created 3 dishes in which the ingredients shine that are part of the various skincare products.

esse works exclusively with pure ingredients without any chemical and colour additives. all products of esse are also organic, fair trade and whenever ​​possible made from local sources. esse is the brainchild of trevor steyn. at this launch he explained the philosophy and the products of esse to the audience.

we enjoyed the co production with willa stoutenbeek van wgreen (pr),  and alexander dikkes (importer en distributor van o.a. esse organic skincare).


dutchDesign 2013 – a video interview

Dutch Design 2013: de Culinaire Werkplaats from Dutch Design on Vimeo.

“i consider myself to be a storyteller and food is my material. i like to provoke questions. if you want to find solutions, then you first have to find the right questions. otherwise, you get nowhere. that’s what we are doing. it’s always about questions. the answers are of less importance to us.” states marjolein in a video interview

with a group of very enthusiastic students of the simon fraser university (sfu) in vancouver, canada. they were on a field trip in the netherlands researching dutch designers for their program dutchDesign 2013.

dutchDesign is an undergraduate field school and research program offered by the school of interactive arts + technology (siat) at sfu under the directorship of russell taylor, senior lecturer in design at siat.

dutchDesign is part of a larger research project that has been studying the same phenomena in Italy with the italiaDesign field school program since 2004. The most significant contribution to the field are the interviews conducted in the Netherlands with leading designers, thinkers, architects and design manufacturers. each year, the new team builds on the previous year’s research.
